      I was involved in 2 groups with Herb and didn't feel there was any bias on his part.  He steered the groups through the process and listened to all discussion. Certainly if he felt strongly enough on something he stood his ground, but so did the rest of us.

      I like this open discussion. I like getting the issues out on the
      table. I want to weigh in on this, but I'm traveling and typing this
      on a blackberry. I'll wait til I get home to a real keyboard to jump
      in. I was glad to see the email from Bill with concerns.... .. I lwant
      to keep this process transparent, so I'll address that. The rating
      teams are valuable and I still like that approach, it's just last year
      had out of control issues that Herb mentioned. Look at this as a
      tweak, not a total change. I expect lots of changes to the base rating
